We are delighted to announce that we raised £1138 from this event. Thanks you so much to all who took part with such enthusiasm and who donated. This money will allow us to fund coaches for afterschool clubs and to support the swimming initiative in our cluster. Thanks for your support
Our first Parent Council meeting of the session is on Wednesday 7 October 2015 at 7.00pm in Woodfarm High School. You will be aware from the newsletter that we are very keen to get some more parents to join.
As this is our first meeting of the session, we thought it would be nice to add a more social aspect to it. We believe that this first meeting is a great opportunity for parents to get the chance to meet each other, the Parent Council and learn a bit more about the life of the school.
On Wednesday we will have tea, coffee and cakes available after the meeting and hope to meet many of you in a more informal setting. Attending this first meeting will give you a flavour of the work that the Parent Council does and in no way means you are committing to attending every meeting.
We are looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening.
School and Nursery will be closed on Friday 9 October for an In-Service day and closed the following week beginning 12 October for the October week holiday. School and Nursery will re-open on Monday 19 October.

As part of our commitment to improving local air quality, East Renfrewshire Council now has powers to issue fixed penalty notices to drivers who don’t switch off their engines when stationary. Council officers will be carrying out patrols around local schools and speaking to drivers who let their vehicles idle unnecessarily.
Air quality within East Renfrewshire is generally good and meets national standards, however we are always keen to make further improvements. Within East Renfrewshire, road traffic is the main source of air pollutants. Parents and others taking children to and from school can help to reduce children’s exposure to exhaust fumes by leaving the car at home, by parking further away from the school and by turning off their engines when stationary.
On Monday 21st September 2015 Thornliebank Primary will be holding a ‘Sponsored Circuit Challenge’.
Children will take part in a number of fun activity stations and work as hard as they can for set time.
The money raised will be used to improve the physical activity opportunities within the school, help pay for after school clubs, team events and new equipment.
We would appreciate your support and encouragement. This is part of our health and wellbeing programme within the school as well as an event to raise money.
